    You can try, but more likely than not it will not be well received by the D.A. First, understand, the field sobriety test is set up to fail. The police officer just needs to find the slightest deviation from what you were asked to do (i.e. estimate 30 seconds at an actual of 35 seconds), and the nystagmus test is almost impossible to pass. Second, your first breath test was above the legal limit. This means (in the D.A.'s view) that at the time of your stop you were driving over the legal limit....

    Yes. You are entitled to full damages including pain and suffering if the driver was negligent. The effect your insurance payments may have on the claim vary depending upon several factors but, an attorney can assist you with presenting the claim in a way that maximizes both your recovery of medical expenses and pain and suffering. You would be best served to retain an attorney prior to any further interaction with the insurance carrier for the other driver. Once you sign a release, your...

    First, the difference between a DUI and Wet Reckless is fines, classes and restrictions on your license. A first time DUI can cause your license to be suspended from 30 days to a year and cost you in fines from $390 to $1000, plus four times that amount in penalties and assessments. You will have to do a 90 day DUI class plus some courts will also include a M.A.D.D. class and AA meetings. Finally you will be placed on summary probation for 36 months or longer. A wet reckless will reduce all...

    You really need to retain another attorney, immediately. The insurance company you are dealing with has a reputation that is not that good. You should seek assistance from any of the personal injury attorneys in your area. Most, if not all will offer a free consultation. Use that. Then pick the attorney you are most comfortable with. You can use this sight to see if the attorneys have any negative disciplinary marks, and also to check their experience and reputation in the field. Further, you...

    The conviction will not stop you from becoming an attorney. But, you must disclose the conviction on your moral character application and show that you are remorseful, taken responsibility, and done all programs and conditions set forth by the conviction. Your moral character might take longer than if you did not have the conviction, but it should not stop you from becoming an attorney.

    The fact that she had pictures of children in her possession at all puts her in a lot of trouble. Child pornography laws are extremely strict and mere possession, whatever the reason will get you arrested. There is a lot of information that is needed before anyone can tell her to plead or fight. But with the type of charge that you are describing it will be a long tough fight. Your friend needs to contact an attorney immediately! As to the sadistic cartoons - depending upon the...

    Any time you are charged with driving under the influence you will need an attorney. Even though the officer did not check the results for the BAC or the revocation/suspension. If you were over the legal limit the DMV has the ability to suspend your license. You will have the opportunity to have a hearing with the DMV. You have to contact the DMV and request a hearing within ten days from the incident. Usually the public defender will not defend an administrative hearing with the DMV. You will...

    As the prior attorney stated. You need a lawyer now! As of right now you really do not know what you have been charged with. You were arrested by the police for a suspicion of DUI. It is up to the city attorney or district attorney to decide to press charges on you or not. When the D.A. does decide to press charges, they will go by the police report that was written after your arrest. At that time, after going over the report and any blood/breath test results, the D.A. will file a criminal...

    When a person is on parole or probation and are subsequently arrested, there is a bail hold put upon them. This means that for the burglary charge his bail is $20,000. But for the parole/probation hold, there is no bail. He will be in county jail until his next court appearance. There the judge can determine if he wants to set a bail for the parole violation. Most often the judge will keep the hold in place until the underlying crime is settled.. Your friend needs to contact his attorney as...
